The voting for all of the semi finalists who didn’t qualify will open for two days, and will close on January 16th at 7:30 EET. The winners will be revealed during the television show “Ringvaate” on January 16th.
According to Estonian song producer Tomi Rahula, having a final with 12 participants helps to give as many contestants as possible, the experience of the big stage, and at the same time, adds excitement to the show.
“Now that both semi finals have been completed and all the competition songs have been listened to, the preferences are clearer than before and you can once again show your support for your favourites. With this, we also give fellow fans a greater opportunity to influence the compsition of the finals.”
